Family Programs

The Institute will present three Family Open House Programs during the year.  These highlight a few of the many fields of scientific study and exploration that have been a part of the Wagner's curriculum for the past 160 years.  Presentations are given in the historic lecture hall with scavenger hunts, crafts, and other activities taking place in the museum.

 

These family programs are appropriate for ages 6 - 12 but are enjoyed by older children, teenagers, and adults alike.

WAGNER ON THE WEEKEND

The Institute is open from 12 - 4 PM on these days.  

The collection may be viewed without attending the program.
